Adobe Desktop Publishing Support/Training

Traditional desktop publishing using Adobe Creative Cloud is industry-standard and it’s the most flexible way to build the yearbook you want, while providing students with the knowledge and skills to succeed in the digital age. Scantex can provide customized training or support, as well customized templates for immediate use, based on your design specs. Our services include training for Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign, at your convenience.

Online system trim size options:  8.5 in x 11 in  |  9 in x 12 in

Preflight and Image Correction Services

Scantex believes your project should look the best it can. Before printing a final book proof for you to check one last time, we will examine your document from front to back. This final proof, image check and adjustment can make all the difference.

  • We will preflight, image correct (where possible), quick-proof and create print-ready PDFs upon final sign-off.

Proofreading Services

Scantex considers your yearbook to be a published document that will stand the test of time. We will do a thorough and professional proofread of your entire yearbook, including looking for possible grammatical and spelling errors.

Our goal is to publish and print an error-free book everytime.
